BUFFALO, N.Y. (AP) -- The Bills have agreed to trade left tackle Jason Peters to the Philadelphia Eagles after failing to negotiate a new contract with the disgruntled two-time Pro Bowl selection.

The basics of the deal were agreed to Friday, a person familiar with the trade talks told The Associated Press. The Eagles are attempting to work out undisclosed final details before completing the trade, said the person, who spoke on the condition of anonymity because the deal has not been announced.

In exchange, the Bills will receive the 28th pick -- the second of the Eagles two first-round picks -- and an undisclosed second-day selection in next week's NFL draft.
